Rose was determined to learn how to cast the tracking spell before Christmas so they could find the tomb before they broke up. However this was proving extremely difficult as despite their talents Scorpius and Rose both struggled to actually cast the spell. Most of the time they practised in the room of requirement where they could go without anybody finding out.

They spent so much time practising that they barely saw Albus or Thalia any more. Which was incredibly frustrating for Albus who had been trying to talk to his best friend and cousin for months. Seeing as how he could not speak to his friends, Albus was spending more and more time with Sienna Vane. Which Albus did not mind as they were becoming good friends however Albus knew that Rose and Scorpius and especially Thalia would never approve of their budding friendship.

It wasn’t until the beginning of December that Albus finally decided to take matters into his own hands and confront Scorpius and Rose.

It was Just after dinner when Rose and Scorpius disappeared again only this time Albus finally decided to follow them. It wasn’t easy as they kept checking behind them clearly not wanting to be followed. However Albus managed to discreetly follow them all the way up to the seventh floor. Soon Albus began to recognise where Rose and Scorpius were standing and just like that fateful day last year a door that had not been there before appeared on the wall. Albus quickly ran to it before it disappeared.

Rose and Scorpius jumped not expecting to hear the door open. Scorpius stared at Albus wide-eyed and confused Rose however looked more angry than confused.

“Albus what are you doing here!? Where you spying on us?” Rose angry accused. Albus stared around the room expecting it to look exactly the same as it had when he had watched Rose suffer. But the room looked entirely different it had a long corridor that led off around the corner.

“What are YOU guys doing here!?”

“That’s none of your business! You didn’t answer my question where you spying on us?”

“Well you can hardly blame me you guys have been sneaking off for months and you barely talk to me and whenever I ask you never tell me where you’re going or what you’re doing I was concerned.” Albus insisted. “And you didn’t answer my question.”

Rose and Scorpius both stared at each other for a long time before finally looking Albus in the eye.

“We thought you wouldn’t understand. We thought you try and stop us…” Scorpius began.

“We’ve been trying to find out how to get back to the clearing we found when we nearly lost Thalia. We think it might be connected to the mist woman. I think it’s her tomb and that if we can find out how to unlock it we might find out more about her and whether or not she still alive. We’ve been trying to figure out a tracking spell for 5th years, and we convinced your brother to lend us his invisibility cloak for a night. So we can sneak out of the castle and find the tomb.” Rose guiltily confessed. Albus stared at her in shock he couldn’t believe they had pulled off such a huge plan and kept it such a secret.

“We are really sorry that we kept it a secret but Rose didn’t think that you would approve or believe us. You’re so far in denial about the mist woman that you won’t even accept the possibility that she could be alive how do you think we could tell you that we think we found her tomb.” Scorpius tried to reason with Albus.

“I don’t blame you.” Albus stared at the floor. “It’s my fault that you had to keep it a secret. I’m really sorry that I never listened to you before and maybe if I had you wouldn’t have felt that you had to do this alone.” Rose stared at him confused wondering what bought this change on. As if reading her mind Albus suddenly started to explain himself.

“Family is the most important thing and I haven’t been a very good friend to you Rose. I’ve been treating you like your crazy when really all you needed was someone to listen to you and that should have been me. I finally got the sense knocked into me to see how I was wrong and I’m sorry. That’s why I spied on you guys because I’ve been trying to tell you how sorry I am for months, but you never had the time to listen to me which is what it must have felt like for you and it was awful I’m so sorry I did that.”

Albus barely finished when Rose attacked him with a hug, Rose was so happy that she was nearly crying. She was so relieved to have her cousin and best friend on her side again. She finally let him go after a long time. She wiped her eyes which were starting to water and grabbed his shoulders.

“Thank you Al. It means the world to me to have you on my side again. But what made you change your mind? I mean you were so determined that I couldn’t possibly be right and now you’ve just changed your mind it doesn’t make any sense!” Albus was so overwhelmed by the hug that he didn’t think about what he was saying next.

“Well Sienna made me see how wrongly I treated you and helped me realise that I should apologise.” Rose stared at Albus confused and backed away slightly. Albus realised what he had just said and braced himself.

“Sienna? As in Sienna Vane? As in Sienna ‘the slytherin’ Vane? The same Sienna who teased me, you and Scorpius mercilessly all last year? How would she know about you not being on my side?” Rose glared. Scorpius could see that this was going to be trouble so he did the only logical thing he could do and backed up a few spaces.

“… I… I kind of… Maybe… Told her about last year.” Albus began to back up to but Rose was advancing towards him at frightening speed. “Before you get mad… She’s nicer than you think… And I know she’d never tell anyone about it. I know I should have asked you before telling her but it kind of just slipped out…” Albus tried desperately to explain.

“You. Told. Sienna. Vane. That. I. Got. Possessed!” It was then that Rose lunged at Albus and began hitting him in a rage. It took a few minutes before Scorpius realised what was going on and held Rose’s arms back, the task proved more difficult than he thought as Rose was stronger than he imagined when she was in a rage.

“HOW COULD YOU! HOW COULD YOU TELL SIENNA VANE! I THOUGHT YOU WERE ON MY SIDE! I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO HELP ME NOT TELL HER!” Rose struggled against Scorpius’ hold as he struggled to hold her back. Albus moved to a safe distance from her in order to explain.

“Look she’s not as bad as you think, she was really nice about it and I know I should have asked you first but she’s not as bad as you think I promise! I trust her to keep the secret.”

“WHAT SO YOUR FRIENDS NOW!? Your friends with the girl who mercilessly teased you and you think she can be trusted? HOW STUPID ARE YOU!?” Rose screamed. Still struggling against Scorpius.

“Look just give her a chance to prove to you that she can be trusted. Let her help find the tomb and I promise you, you won’t regret it! Please Rose that’s all I’m asking for is a chance.”

 

“Remind me again, why we’re not telling Thalia about this? She was in on this last year shouldn’t she help us now?” Albus asked confused as they all made their way down to the library where Albus knew Sienna would be.

“Because, what we’re doing is absolutely terrifying and I want Thalia to have a normal school year, without the risk of death.” Rose replied certainly. Scorpius and Albus nodded acceptingly. When they finally reached the library Albus took the lead in finding Sienna.

“I see the trio is back together! Well thank God for that!” Sienna said sarcastically after seeing them together, Albus rolled his eyes jokingly.

“They know. They know that you know about last year.” Albus said seriously

“Well. Well. Well. Judging by the fact that you’re not trying to tear my head off I’m guessing, you want my help.” Sienna looked between Scorpius and Rose.

“Albus, I’ve changed my mind, I don’t want HER having anything to do with this!” Rose glared at Sienna who smirked, Albus sighed.

“Rose please, just give her a chance she knows anyway so we may as well let her in.” Rose didn’t break her glare, and Sienna didn’t break her smirk. Scorpius looked between Rose and Sienna and finally decided to interrupt, he stood in between them and held Rose’s shoulders.

“Rose. I know you don’t want to trust her, but just think what could have happened last year if you had given ME a chance! Don’t judge Sienna by what she HAS done, and start judging her by what she IS doing. Which is offering to help us.” Rose looked at Sienna and noticed her looking away. Rose contemplated it for a moment before sighing.

“Fine. I’ll give her one chance. But if she blows it she’s out for good.”

“Well Potter. As much as I love to sit here and be judged by your annoying cousin. What are we looking for here?” Sienna asked directly at Albus. They told her everything Rose and Scorpius had found out in the last few months about the tomb, the invisibility cloak and tracking spell. When they were done Sienna just stared at them.

“Well that all sounds fantastically dangerous. However I’ve already seen one huge hole in your plan to get us all killed or expelled.” Sienna rolled her eyes. “That invisibility cloak would barely hold you and Scorpius let alone me and Albus as well.”

“Oh. I hadn’t thought about that, what are we going to do?” Rose wondered.

“Lucky for you, you’ve got me on your team. And I know how to sneak out of the Castle without attracting anyone’s attention. I’ve done it hundreds of times, I know the path the caretaker takes, the times he does his rounds, and every security system this Castle has to offer.” Sienna leaned back on her chair confidently.

“But still… Won’t it attract even more attention with four of us?” Scorpius asked.

“I hadn’t thought about that, I’ve mostly just done it alone. But if you’re so worried about it, then you and Freckles take the invisibility cloak, and me and Potter will sneak out and meet you there.” Sienna agreed. They all decided that they should wait until after Christmas to sneak out so as to give Rose and Scorpius more of a chance to learn the tracking spell.

 

 

The train ride home was extremely silent. Rose, Albus and Scorpius had found a compartment to themselves but Rose was still angry at Albus for telling Sienna, and Scorpius was trying to avoid an argument. After an hour of complete silence Rose finally looked up from her book that she’d been reading to talk to Albus.

“How did it happen?” Rose didn’t look at Albus but he knew she was talking to him.

“It was an accident. I was angry the night after our first quidditch match and she came to congratulate me. It was nice to be able to talk to someone and I got carried away and ended up telling her everything.” Albus said sheepishly.

“Why?” Rose asked.

“Why what?” Albus finally looked up at her.

“Why her? There were hundreds of other girls who would have congratulated you that night, who would have comforted you, who would have talked to you. So why did it have to be her? Why did you choose to confide in her?” Rose seriously asked. Albus stared at her confused for a moment before answering.

“I don’t know. She was just there, and she told me she wouldn’t tell because she didn’t want her friends to know she been there. I don’t know why I chose her, it just happened. I’m sorry.”

“So why did you keep talking to her afterwards?” Rose questioned.

“I couldn’t just leave her after telling her all that! I needed to make sure that she wouldn’t tell. And then when I found out she wouldn’t, I don’t know I just figured she wasn’t the person people thought she was and it was nice to have a friend again.” Albus turned red while answering. A gesture that had not gone amiss by Rose.

“I just… I hope you know what you’re doing. She may seem nice to you but that girl could break your heart in two if you let her! And besides is she really as nice as you say she is? Or is that the fake Sienna, and the real Sienna is the one we’ve always known?” Rose left Albus thinking about that for the rest of the train ride home, and the whole Christmas break for that matter.

 

How could he know who the real Sienna was?
